4 out of 5 eggsLOUD!

Pros: It's good to have a cool looking cooler on the front of the case. It also saves space for another HDD/SSD in the hard drive bay area. Hey, It do what it do!

Cons: Too Loud! It's louder than my 120 mm, 140 mm, and my 230 mm fans!

Other Thoughts: Cooler Master HAF 932, ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition, Intel Core i7-480K Ivy Bridge-E, Cooler Master V8, Kingston SSD and WD Velociraptor (She won't quit!), Seagate 1TB

3 out of 5 eggsOK air vent, 'meh' hard drive cooler

Pros: Moves some air, not terribly loud, good option for mounting an HDD in older cases that lack ventilation.

Cons: Dust filter is too thick - reduces already minimal airflow, loud enough to notice, NOT factory compatible with Dell cases using the 'screw head slides into groove' style CD/DVD mounts.

Other Thoughts: I bought this kit to add another hard drive and some airflow to my old PC, a Dell E510. Other than something like this, the only way to add a fan to an E510 would involve a saw.

Having said that, unfortunately this kit takes some tinkering to mount in this Dell case. This kit was meant to be installed with screws from both sides. The Dell case uses a system where the CD/DVD drives have screws with elongated heads put in each side, and the screws then slide and lock into channels. If your case has a similar setup, look elsewhere or get ready to do some metal surgery. The dustcover wont fit under my cases front cover, but this isn't a problem as I use it without the dust screen to get more airflow.

With the dust filter in place, this pulls in just enough air to stick a tissue to the filter in front of each fan. That's not much, but without this the drive would get no airflow at all. I have a third fan in the mail already to improve it though, and I wouldn't recommend this for a performance HDD. It makes enough noise for you to hear it when it's on, but it's quiet enough that I think most people would tune it out pretty quick.

1 out of 5 eggsRubbish craftsmanship

Pros: Could possibly cool a HD if it wasn't built so poorly

Cons: The bracket didn't remotely fit into the 5.25 bay. (Two DVD drives have fit in there previously, so the bay's dimensions are fine.) I had to grind down the top portion of the frame's faceplate (where the fans mount) in order to fit it in enough to secure the bracket to the bay. At this price, the bracket should fit in easily.

The two fans are wired together, which sounds great until the wire on one of them cracks open. If they were separable, I'd just replace one of the fans.

Other Thoughts: Time to order more fans from Newegg.

4 out of 5 eggsOK

Pros: Cooles HD. Has dust filter.

Cons: The dust filter seemed to be a little too thick. LOUD!

Other Thoughts: Works if no other options. Better to get a case that keeps the HD's cool.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: Does what it advertised to do. Wish it moved more air but what more could you ask for from the baby fans that are in there... all in all it does a decent job.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: maybe make the clips that hold it into place a bit longer so its a bit more stable in a 5.25 bay.
I wonder if you used a fan controller, could you squeeze more airflow out?

4 out of 5 eggsMoves air, hard to install

Pros: Looks good, effective cooling, filter keeps out crud, panel fits 5.25 bay well.

Cons: Not at all easy to install. No instructions either. Not a major problem for me, because I'm only using it for a front-air intake device on my HAF922 case. However, if you plan to use this thing in the way it was intended, get ready for some screwdriver frustration.

Other Thoughts: I'll probably splice in an LED mod so that I know that the thing is on (hard to tell through the filter).

3 out of 5 eggsBasic bay cooling

Pros: 5.25 bay fan, Air filter, room for adding 3rd fan

Cons: low air circulation, awkward placement of hard drive mounting brackets, may not work in tool-less cases

Other Thoughts: I'm sure it's an effective product if you need to add air circulation in your case, but since it isn't full length, it will not mount in my tool-less case.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: It's made by Star Tech, which are usually decent for what you pay.

Cons: Flimsy, a hard drive mount needs to be sturdy so that it can suppress the vibration of the hard drive. There is no instruction booklet in the case or on Star Tech's website and it is not as straight forward as you would think... also loud.

Other Thoughts: Over half the comments on here are of people who "jimmy rigged" this product to get it to work.

4 out of 5 eggsNice unit

Pros: Nice unit. Fits standard 5.25" bay with no issues.

Cons: None as/of yet.

Other Thoughts: They clearly have a spot for a 3rd fan. Why wouldn't they just include a 3rd fan? or at least the screws to add the 3rd fan?

3 out of 5 eggsAlright Design, TERRIBLE installation

Pros: The fans for me are quiet. It does what it says. It moves air (although not much... not that I can tell). The screws for the two preinstalled fans only fill up 2/4 of the holes. If you add more screws, it might fix some people's problems of 'loud fans'.

Cons: It has no instructions. This thing was a nightmare to install into my case. I had to try the mounts in every way possible to actually put it in a place where air would flow around a hard drive. The hard drive mount is just 2 metal brackets, and the fan/cover is separate.
The front of mine was over 5.25", so I had to take a power sander and sand the sides down, which was a huge hassle. This thing took me about 4 hours to install.

Other Thoughts: I put some foam under one of the mounts because my case only supports screws from one side, and it hangs on the top a bit. It will make it so that the hard drive wont bang the other hanging side around while reducing vibrations.
It comes with a lot of screws. I'm adding another fan to it when I it arrives in the next shipment. Overall the product is good, but if you aren't great at putting stuff together without directions you should probably avoid this product.
